What are the limitations of Alexa ranking?

This ranking is favourable to all kinds of sites related to webmasters and technology. This is because normally the visitors these sites are potentially more likely to have the installed bar than users who never heard of Alexa. Therefore, this method of measurement of traffic in a site is not very precise. It is easy to identify sites with a large disparity of visits in which the least visited has a higher ranking. Just as a reference for ranking lack of liability.
But once more if you want to make some money you better do well in this ranking.

Alexa.com is a subsidiary of Amazon.com. It is a website which provides information on traffic levels for websites. The Alexa rank is measured according to the amount of users who’ve visited a website with the Alexa toolbar installed. Alexa toolbar is an application developed by Alexa Internet. Its primary use is to measure website statistics. This toolbar collects as well as gives some valuable information. Once you install it, the Alexa toolbar monitors all your surfing and collects information about what domains you visit. They use this data to rank web sites. The traffic rank they assign to websites is based on 3 months of aggregated historical traffic data from millions of other users and is a combined measure of page views and users. Webmasters, advertisers and ad networks use your blog’s Alexa rank as a gauge to determine the worth of a link on your website. If you depend on link or site selling as a form of monetization you’ll definitely want to increase your Alexa rank, because it’ll increase your bargaining power when it comes to ad pricing.
